COVID-19 Museum Visitation Policies
Per CDC guidelines, visitors and staff who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear face coverings. If visitors are not vaccinated, face coverings are still required. Face coverings are still recommended for children 2 and up, unless they are vaccinated. Face coverings will be available upon entry for those who do not have one.
Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present: we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit.
COVID-19 Public Program Policies
For the safety of staff and other participants, some programs still require face coverings for guests who are not vaccinated. Per CDC guidelines, adult guests and staff who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear face coverings. Children's masks are available upon entry for those who do not have one. Additional safety measures will be observed where possible.
Individual program safety requirements may vary by location, capacity, and other factors. Please see individual program descriptions for more information.
